    Please LARGER TYPE

    Curt Y Community Member

      The new smaller font on the Discussion page is so small that it is difficult to see what is happening.

       

      With the smaller font it is even difficult to see what is new as the bold print does not even look like it is bold.

       

      Please change the font immediately to a LARGER font.

       

      Using a 24 inch monitor.

          Funny, I was about to post that I LOVE the smaller font!  Also using a 24" but I still love it on my 13" as well.

            You must be under 35.

              I also love the new small font, although it is a bit difficult to discern between normal and bold (read | new/updated).

               

              I suggest to use the browser's zoom functionality (Ctrl+ / Ctrl- on Windows) to render larger font view.

               

              (P.S. I am > 60)

                Yes, Ctrl+ helped my tired old eyes greatly.

                 

                Now, if we could just have a different color for "New/Updated," as has been noted. Perhaps burnt umber?

                  Yeah what's up with that font size. That's just terrible.

                  I guess anybody that can read that isn't using a high screen resolution.

                  They didn't make the rest of the page match, so you when enlarge the page, the rest of the stuff is giant.

                    Nope.

                      I tried it on my 15" 1920x1200 and it's still fine.

                        You must be under 35.

                         

                        Nope.

                         

                        Nor am I, more like a generation more, and I can read it, too, at 90 PPI on screen. But there is a contrast between the text size in the forum and in the threads.

                         

                        I suggest to use the browser's zoom functionality (Ctrl+ / Ctrl- on Windows) to render larger font view.

                         

                        That would also rid us of the stuff to the right, if done a few times, but then you would have to push back the chair to read the threads.

                          Exactly, The font of the stuff to the right is several sizes larger than the font on the Discussion page, creating an imbalance if you enlarge Discussion Page. 

                           

                          IN ADDITION, the font is larger when you open an individual thread to reply.  So if you have the Discussion Page rendered to give a larger view, then when you open the Reply Page it is so large you can not see much of the thread without major scrolling.

                           

                          Totally unacceptable! 

                           

                          I don't think the web designers and beta testers  have ever used the Forums.  If they did they would not give us this garbage to work with.

                           

                          Still not to late to make it right before every one flees in disgust.

                            Does Adobe ever do usability studies?

                             

                            Light blue, 11pixel bold type is not user-friendly.
